Outdoor Research Yukon Cap
Outdoor ResearchYukon Cap

Panning for gold is no picnic, but the fleece-lined Outdoor Research Yukon Hat will keep your head warm while you scour the Tombstone Mountains for the mother lode. Earflaps snap to the hat when not needed and drop down to prevent earsicles.

Wool content not correct

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The item was fine although I never used it due to it not meeting the wool content specs given- 70% wool. The tag says it is 70% polyester 30% wool. I bought it for the higher wool content represented, but not accurate. I will be returning. Three stars for it being a decent hat just not enough wool.

Wool content not correct

Very poor customer service

    I ordered this hat. Not only was the product of poor quality but it was a real ordeal trying to return the product. The link to create the return label is “fake” and the print link does not work.

    Great hat

      This hat fits perfectly, its warm, cozy and is well made. Shipping was fast as well. Got it with in 2 days of ordering.

      I don't have THAT big a head

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I followed the sizing specs and purchased a large, even though my head size is generally a medium across the board. Sure enough, large was too large. Follow your usual.

      I got a second one

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      After years of use I got a second one. This is my most used cap. This keeps the snow off my glasses and ears, great for shoveling lots of snow. Plus it stays in my suburban or daypack almost year around, great for cold summer mornings in the mountains here. Stuffs into my daypack great, I have a stuff sun hat for when it gets warmer. My old one has been through the wash, no dryer, several times and still wears/looks like new. sizing, well the xl fits me like a glove, I wear 2xl moto helmets, starts with a K ends with M, the other is a Shoe with a i.

      Excellent! Thank you Tim!

      Enjoy - we have plenty of other colors for you as well. It is a best seller!

      I kind of like this hat

        Pleased with this hat. I do agree with other people, but the hat does seem a bit thin when you pull down the ear flaps. I'd still buy this hat again knowing that because to me it feels very comfortable.

        Thanks Mark - this is a top seller for OR and we have LOTS of colors. Enjoy it!

        Colors way off, material very thin

          The color I purchased was "Black/Earth" and the colors in the photo are way off. In the photo, the colors have a warm reddish hue and you can see blue spots. The actual hat colors look washed out and muted. The material is extremely thin and barely covers your ears- this is NOT a hat for a cold day. The hat feels cheap and not worth the price in my opinion.

          Hey Shawn, I am so sorry that you didnt like this hat. I will send your feedback to our designers. This is one of our best sellers, so I was surprised to read this. Thanks so much for writing, and I am sorry for my delayed response in getting to you!

          Lumberjack chic

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          This is a pretty comfy, warm hat. It excels on chilly dog walks, but when the breeze kicks up, the lack of tie downs for the ear flaps leaves something to be desired.

          Hey RT - Leta with OR here. Seems ike we might want to add some stiffening to the ear flaps to keep them down. I can completely understand what you are saying, but you are right about lumberjack chic! It looks good, and although we have lots of other options that work functionally better around the ears, this one is trying to hit a "look" as well. I'll pass on the feedback.

          Thanks so much for the review,
          Leta

          Cold air comes thru the flaps

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: True to size

          This is not a great hat for keeping the ears warm. The flaps don't lay flat on my ears and the button holes allow cold air in as well. Not made for really cold weather. Just my opinion.

          Keeps the noggin warm and glasses clear

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size

          nice hat, soft and good fit. I like it. the fit guide is spot on. Ill see if it holds up a couple years and make it a 5 if so.

          Super wool hat

          This is my new go to hat! Short split bill is great, easy to fold for pocket storage. Well made, good fit.

          Best wool hat

            This is the best wool hat available in XL size, with a brim and ear flaps. The shorter brim is great for keeping the rain or snow off my eyeglasses. Longer brims on other hats usually get in the way of seeing up, especially tromping around the woods. The double layer keeps my head warm in most cold temps except when the wind blows hard. Comfortable too.

            You mentioned wearing this in snow and rain. How well does this hat repel water/moisture? I love the look of this hat but hestitate buying it since I live the Seattle area with its typical misty and rainy winters. Advice?

            Great Style

              awesome hat, great style, i would gave 4.5 stars just because of the buttons to hold the fur ears, I would recommend it, worn in February NY, -5� C, my ears were warm and comfortable.

              Funky Town

                Love this hat. It's fun and practical. I had it with me all of last winter and would skin with it on cold days. If you have a helmet, it fits easily in your backcountry pack or you can throw goggles on and sport it for the down.

                I'm no Canadian...

                  but I stil think this hat is rad. Great fit, folds up for easy packing, and it might improve your chances at the bar... depending on the bar.

                  Great hat

                    Just came by UPS. Had to rip open the carton because I'd ordered an XL and wanted to find out if I'd have to return it. It fits nicely which for us guys with big heads is not the usual case. Plus I'm always trying to figure out what to do with a non-folding cap (mostly I have to stuff them under the waistline of my pants with the bill over one bun). Now I can use my pockets, The real grabber was that it matches other red/black plaid gear (which included an old XL Eddie Bauer earflap cap which was too small and not stuffable). Still wondering what the opening in the front of the cap is for .. fit? or another reason?

                    I Like It

                      Never really preferred this type of hat before but what I think makes this one work for me is the 'perforated' brim. I think it accounts for the better fit, it just feels better and I think looks better on. It buttons rather than snaps, which I like. The fleece lining isn't too bulky that it makes your head look huge, but is enough to provide sufficient warmth. Can recommend this item and the only reason I'm not giving it that 5th star is because it's double-branded, on both the front and the back, that's my own little pet peeve, otherwise it's a winner.

                      Have they changed these hats?... or do the earflaps still "BUTTON" up on the sides... and not "SNAP" as your description states?

                      Just got myself the blue one, and they most certainly BUTTON and not SNAP...
